are in the house, but i want your thoughts on harry reid asking to come back after the recess and then they will just push this through. how much would that all of us members of congress? how much would it hurt future bills if they take this bill and they run with it? >> it is pretty much standard operating procedure under this democratic congress. they pile drive through the stimulus, the budget, the national energy tax. it is no surprise to many of us, as they tried to do in july, and they may come back and try to push through health-care reform. he is leaving one person out of the equation. the american people have a different opinion here. they are expressing that at public forums all over the country. i expect they will of continue to do that. as we stay -- say in my state, he has another thing coming in the things that america is going to stand idly by as they push health-care reform through congress. trace: thank you. martha: how is it going? shepard: we have been going through withdrawal with you gone. martha: that is why i left. shepard: we did a story about those vot
